Definitely android is next (hopefully android tv too).

whether you see this negatively or not, its obviously a first step towards PS Now rolling out to devices other than PS4 and PC.

They already did that with Samsung TVs ... (it didn't end well for the most part since they had to shut down the service) 

There are two interpretations for cloud gaming IMO ... 

1. A future of dense farms of dedicated gaming hardware which specialize in game streaming as a service ...

2. A future where your own personal devices are capable of streaming which enhances ownership of the said device ... 

It is seemingly likely that both paths will persist because #1 incentives immediate cost and because #2 incentives ownership of the system. If this is how Sony intends to re-enter the portable market, then so be it. It'll become interesting to see some statistics in the next couple of years to see how it adds value to the PS4 around the whole world and especially in Japan where portable gaming is all the rage and to see whether or not Sony was able to break the stalemate over there ... (I can see why iOS would be the priority in this instance because of the platforms popularity)
